Fake News Speakers

No-one had heard the term ‘fake news’ until well into the twenty-first century.

But fake news and disinformation has been part of propaganda, politics, and warfare, for centuries. King Edward I of England made ‘false news’ an offence eight hundred years ago! Today personalisation via social media, and the industrialisation of the creation of dubious content is commonplace in what is coming to be known as the ‘post-truth’ news environment. And the coming era of deep-fake video content could well lead us to mistrust almost all media with profound outcomes for trust within society.

Speakers on fake news deal with the social and political implications as well the technical and journalistic aspects of its creation.
